Mamas and Papas decided to recall 3 000 Armadillo Flip Strollers. According to the company, a loose latch on the stroller is a big threat for the child. The seat can tip back by mistake while the infant is in the parent-facing position. This puts children in danger. The & Papas Armadillo Flip and Armadillo Flip XT strollers will not be longer sold until the company will make sure they are not a danger to the babies.
There were 10 cases of seats tipping back. Even though there were no injuries reported, the company did not want to put children at risk of falling. Those of you who have already bought the strollers should stop using them and contact Mamas and Papas for a free repair. The products have been sold from December 2014 to July 2016. Their price was between 500 and 550 dollars.
